Wikipedia has been the source for most of our research. As technology consultants, we tend to do a lot of research on various topics and Wikipedia is a great starting point of any research process. The best is that we can get an overall idea of what you looking for in a single page of Wikipedia. This help us to understand certain topic in minutes. References and quotes on a Wiki entry provide us the path to further research on specific items, thus accelerating the research process.
Without Wikipedia, we would spend a lot of time Googling for our research.
